Fundraisers make £800 for busy air ambulance


Soroptimist president Irene Brooks (on the right) and secretary Judy Nixon get on 'board'.

A 'spot the helicopter' board game has helped raise £800 for the county's life-saving air ambulance.

The game was a highlight of a garden party organised by members of the Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead branch of the fundraising Soroptimist organisation.

The event was held in a member's garden and featured a tombola stall, second hand book stall and raffle as well as the chance to 'spot that 'copter'.

July was a record breaking month for the crew of the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance, who flew an incredible 111 missions - 40 per cent above the usual number, mainly as a resuilt of road and motorcycle incidents.
